Early Access version 60


:warning: v60.1 has problems with the Galactic Store UI not updating properly. Use v.60.2 instead.

Yet another update with behind-the-scenes changes and also some technical fixes (hopefully).

Bug/Idea medals will be awarded later in the day. :warning: Your medal cannot be awarded if your in-game callsign doesn’t match your forum name (send it to me in a private message).


You will lose:

  • any in-mission progress
  • all graphics options, which includes your window/borderless/fullscreen setting.
  • if any options have been removed or added to a new version, then all menu options (not just graphics) will be lost.

You are reminded that during Early Access you are responsible for backing up your own progress. Make a copy of everything under C:\ProgramData\InterAction studios\CIU (including all sub-folders). :warning: Never rename files or move them from one version folder to another. Simply make a copy and then later put it back exactly where you found it.


By the way, can anyone think of a legitimate reason why you would NOT want other players to know that you own a Chicken Hunter License? A sort of incognito mode? The badge decorates your callsign wherever it appears (galaxy, top-10 messages, hall of fame).



Could the text have a glow too perhaps?

Aww I liked yellow one which was before.


I can only think of privacy things though considering the average demographic of the playerbase I doubt many users would care


Nope. Still crashes.

InterAction studios, I have very important question which can’t be avoided in order for our universe to continue existing:

Why it’s so small wat


There’s going to be those few players that’ll be salty that someone else got CHL and would try to sabotage or show their dislike towards the CHL player. Another reason can be not wanting to seem like you’re flaunting it and instead wanting to be modest about it. Those are the best I could thinks of.



At last it’s here!

What is the difference between a licensed spacecraft and a non-licensed one ?

@InterAction_studios Me and my brother accidentally found the way to cause this error. Will post what I was doing in few minutes.

UPD: Here. Red thing resambles my cursor because ReLive doesn’t record it. What I did is that I double clicked the game in task bar and moved the cursor right to the desktop after that, before the game launches.

Oh and it only works with desktop. If something is behind, game opens as it should.


A licensed one has the price cut in half

How it works ?

This looks weird to me, the 0 is very close to the bar



How much does the license cost? because I already want to buy it

Hey absolve beam now needs 600 500 keys
All of the weapons are 500

There is no hunter badge in customize menu (for space crafts)

I hate this
Who have a mod to remove it? (Joke : | )

Let the game be released first.
